4:01 am
forces we'll wipe them out. since this summer, isil has not had a single successful major offensive operation on the ground in either syria or iraq. in recent weeks, we've destroyed hundreds of their tanker trucks, wells, and refineries. and we're going to keep on hammering those. isil also continues to lose territory in iraq. isil had already lost across kircut province and in tikrit and more@ recently, isil lost at sinjar, losing a sategic highway. isil lost t baiji with its oil refinery. we saw during the daring raid supported by our special forces, which rescued dozens of prisoners from il, which master sergeant joshua wheeler made the ultimate sacrifice. so far isil has lost about 40% of the populated areas it

4:03 am
[ explosion ] here on the front line, the bomb squad is a .50-caliber gunner. the first went up in a plume of smoke. he then opened up on the car in the ditch, the one much closer to us. we watched until he finally made a direct hit. [ explosion ] the massive explosion blew shrapnel in every direction and filled the bunker with choking dust. that noise is debris from the bomb and wreckage from the car that came crashing down. everybody's ears were ringing, but no one was hurt. hours later, we crossed into syria where rebel commander colonel talal ali selo gave us a grim picture of just how many suicide missions they've seen. can n u give me an idea, how
4:04 am
past month? "42 car and truck bombers," he said, "three on motorcycles and foururuicide bombers on foot." this week three car bombs killed 28 people. the colonel told us the town had ruout of sugar, so to get past checkpoints, isis hid the bombs in trucks delivering sugar. you went to the funeral today. what are people there telling you? "they want revenge for the dead," he told us, "and they want us to make sure this doesn't happen again." the colonel told us although they stotoed most attacks, scott, it's hard to stop them all because isis is constantly changing tactics. they never know when they're going to strike, and they seem to have an unlimited supply of suicide bombers. >> charlie d'agata on the battlefield, thanks. there's also apparently an unlimited supply of followers coming to the west.

4:06 am
tually have that scrutiny. >> reporter: the department of homeland security says it began three pilot programs in 2014 to examine whether screening social media was consistent with current laws and privacy protections. today government officials dismissed allegations homeland security secretary jeh johnson delayed the implementation of nenerules because of public relations concerns. a review of the policy is under way. since the attack, some members congress have been demanding chges to the visa screening system. neneyork senator charles schumer. >> and had they checked out tashfeen malik a little more, maybe she wouldn't have gotten a visa. >> reporter: even one of the country's largest muslim orgagazations is not against increased social media scrutiny. ibrahim cooper is with the council on american islamic relations. >> measures that target only one faith group, only one ethnic group or people from a certain national origin, that raises

4:09 am
here's major garrett. >e're doing really well. iowa's been amazing. >> reporter: donald trump is no longer winning in iowa. the "des moines register"/bloomberg politics poll is one of two in the last week to show ted cruz on top. the third poll out today has trump and cruz tied. faced with adversity, trump is now attacking cruz >> i don't think he has the right temperament. i don'n'think he's got the right judgment. >> reporter: trump mocked cruz's frequent clashes with gop leaders, most memorably when he triggered the 2013 government shutdown in a futile attempt to end obamacare.e. >> you look at the way he's dealt with the senate, where he goes in there like, frankly like a little bit of a maniac. you're never going to get things done that way. reporter: cruz consnsers the shutdown a demonstration of conservative zeal among gop establishment timidity, but cruz, ever wary of aggravating
4:10 am
the point. instead he posted this throwback video of the movie "flashdance," dedicated, cruz said, to maniacs everywhere. trump and cruz's battle in iowa has come at the expense of former leader ben carson. he told an iowa radio show he's fallen behind as terrorism has become a top campaign issue. >> reporter: tomorrow night's prime time debate will give carson a chance to turn the tide on foreign policy. marco rubio, whose november rise in the polls, has suddenly stalled, is also in need of fresh momentum. scott, rubio is still best positioned as the republican alternative should voters want one, to trump, cruruand carson. >> major garrett not in venice
4:11 am

4:15 am
good projects. let me put the problem of gun violence into perspective. think of the most horrific mass shootings in american history. newtown, 26 peopop killed, virginia tech, 32 people killed, and we lose that many people to gun violence every day in america. on an average day in america, 31 people are killed with gun homicides, and 58 people shoot themselves with guns. this isn't just a law enforcement problem, it's a public health problem. homicides and suicides are the number-two and number-three causes of death in young people and teenagers in america today. those people aren't being killed with viruses. they're being killed for the most part by bullets. the gun is, afafr all a machine, a mechanical object that causes injuries, like a car, and car crash deaths in this country have dropped by more than half since 1980 by a public health approach with safer highways and safer car design. we can take a public health approach to design safer guns and put in other public health policies to reduce gun deaths, as well.
4:16 am
process for background checks. you can undergo a more thorough vetting of you want to adopt a cat from a shelter than to get a gun. if you can reduce the number of guns in america, we can prevent an awful lot of those shootings. >> former new york city health commissioner tom farley. if a drone is on your shopopng list, there's somomhing you need to do before it takes off. the "cbs overnight it's the little things in life that make me smile. spending the day with my niece. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get ininetween my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident t ile you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free. we've been changing things up with k-y love. oh yeah. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both our sensations. it gives us chills in places we've never gotten chills before.

4:20 am
evasive maneuvers. there has never been a confirmed collision between a drone and another aircraft. the new registration system will require drone owners to give their name, mailing address and e-mail and pay a $5 fee. >> i think it's going to create a deterrent. i think some will not want to pay that fee. >> reporter: lawyer michael drobac works with the drone industry, which has been supportive of a registration system. does having the registration system make the skies safer, do you think? >> do i think those who would act in an inappropriate manner, do i think they will register? probably not. >> reporter: the faa will waive that $5 fee for the first 30 days. scott, all operators will be given an identification number that has to be displayed on their drones. >> kris van cleave, thanks very much. still ahead, the bully poultry.
